Cheesy Beef & Noodle Bake

Cheesy beef & noodle bake is a hearty dish that is easy, yummy, and perfect to make ahead and freeze.

cheesy hamburger noodle bake

This hamburger casserole is super easy to throw together for a busy weeknight meal. With a simple green salad and rolls, this will make a hearty and satisfying dinner.

Make ahead: This is a perfect freezer dish to make, freeze, and pull out when needed. Just make per directions up until the point of baking. Wrap well and freeze. When ready to bake, thaw (overnight is best) and cook at 350 degrees until bubbly. If partially frozen, cooking time will take longer.

We usually have leftovers, and this reheats and tastes great the next day. I pack it in individual microwaveable containers for grab & go school lunches.
